Looks Like Joe Biden Is Getting His Own Ice Cream Flavor

The Cornell Daily Sun reports that dairy plant Cornell Dairy is working with the Cornell Convocation Committee to give Joe Biden his very own flavor of sweet soft serve.

When graduating senior Molly Mandel heard that Biden would be speaking at the graduation ceremony this year, she instantly got to work trying to come up with a flavor for the former Vice President. Mandel was an intern at the Cornell Dairy Processing Plant.

After running through 150 ice cream flavors, looking for the perfect one, the processing plant whittled it down to five, as of this writing: Biden’s Chocolate Bites; Bits n’ Biden; Big Red, White & Biden; Not Your Average Joe’s Chocolate Chip; and Uncle Joe’s Chocolate Chip.

Biden, the former senator from Delaware, is an avid fan of the frozen dessert, maybe even more than Kanye West.

We’ll keep you posted when the final flavor is announced.

A Taco Bell Is Scammed Out Of THOUSANDS By Suspect Pretending To Be Company Vice President

A single Taco Bell is making headlines, though not for any crazy new items.

It seems this particular Taco Bell fell victim to a grift, reports Consumerist.

On Tuesday evening someone called an Arkansas Taco Bell store claiming to be “Pamela Miller” a vice president at Taco Bell.

The caller told the employee that US Marshalls would be coming to arrest the store manager and that she needed to collect thousands of dollars from the safe, throw it into a bank bag, and hand it off to a trusted coworker until further instructions were giving.

The Taco Bell employee did just that, cleaning out the restaurant’s safe and gave it to another coworker. “Pamela” then instructed the second employee to complete a wire transfer.

While the second employee was out handling his share of the “mission,” the first employee began to have doubts of the authenticity of the caller.

After a call to the regional manager of Taco Bell, she learned that the caller was a fraud.

Unfortunately, the second employee already transferred more than $2,000 through Western Union and Money Gram at two different stores.

Police officers were able to find the recipients of the money transfers, despite the employee flushing the transfer receipts down the toilet, per instructions of the “Pamela.”

You can’t make this up.

The most astonishing part of this caper was that both Taco Bell employees missed quite a few red flags before common sense kicked in.
